**The New Year may have started with disappointment for triple-defending champions Leinster, who saw their 26-match winning streak ended by Irish rivals Connacht at the RDS Arena - but what an unbeaten run it was.** \n\nSuch an incredible run certainly deserves a period of warm reflection. \n\nBetween the loss against Connacht and their previous reverse against Ulster in April 2019, Leo Cullen’s men lifted two Guinness PRO14 trophies and completed the 2019/20 campaign unbeaten to earn a record seventh title - the competition’s first three-in-a-row. \n\nLeinster flew out the traps again in 2020/21 with a maximum 35 points from their first seven games, and they remain firmly in the mix to top this season’s Conference A ranks, currently in second behind Ulster. \n\nBreaking records has become a habit in the Irish capital and before we delve back into the upcoming action this weekend, we take a look back at the incredible unbeaten achievements of Leinster, who have raised the bar to stratospheric heights in the Championship.
